Indus Learning Series
Indus World School is a learning space, as much for teachers and parents as is for children. While Children blossom through the academic curriculum with sports and arts integral to their learning environment, the mentors learn by creating lesson plans, applying, observing, introspecting, practicing and enhancing their thought processes every day at school. Then, how and what do parents learn at this school?
Enriched families contribute to enlightened children. We endeavor to facilitate parents and families through our INDUS LEARNING SERIES.
Vast amount of research has been done worldwide in areas of child psychology and effective parenting, and only a speck of it gets translated into practice. Parenting is a sensitive and complicated issue, and many parents of today’s times realize this very well. Furthermore, they are also mindful about being supportive and caring to their children, and wanting to learn more about conscious parenting. I am sure you are one too.
Indus World School wishes to be a facilitator in this learning goal of parents, and in turn facilitate in bringing up emotionally, socially, intellectually, physically, spiritually healthy children of this country.
On a regular basis, as part of INDUS LEARNING SERIES, 120-minute parent-workshops are integral to the journey at Indus World School. These workshops are on a wide range of topics of general interest and relevance to parents of children from all age groups, and sometimes specifically for a particular age group.
One of the most sought after session(s) in the series is on how to help parents nurture potential of a child. This session can go for six-hours at the bare minimum to six days on intense workshop, each day for an intelligence. I do a two-hour introduction to the concept of multiple-intelligence too that can later run into longer versions. Each of these sessions would help you strive to discover and nurture the potentials of your child.

Workshop : Discovering and Nurturing Potential / Nurture your child’s Intelligence / Find a winner in your child / Find a Leader in your child
“The essence of intelligence is skill in extracting meaning from everyday experience”
• Understanding the concept of Multiple Intelligence
• Finding out the different kinds of potentials your child has
• Knowing how to further nurture your child’s potentials
For ages, ‘intelligence’ of a child has been measured by the grades, ranks and marks scored in school exams. Many parents reprimand or give up on their children who do not stand up to this yardstick. Hence, these children may remain denied of opportunities and encouragement by their adults. Such children usually may find it difficult to build confidence, self-awareness and self-esteem.
The reality is that there are multiple intelligences and infinite potential that each person possesses. Thus, every child is ‘intelligent’ in his/her own way.
You, as parents, would be doing a lot of good to your children by being aware of what potentials your child has, and how to nurture them in those areas so that they could make use of the right opportunities in their lives. Yes, it is important for you to know your child’s potentials, to be able to contribute positively to their rounded development. Help your child be a winner. Come, together we will make it happen.
